CroMe interview with Jany Hansal

This Catholic woman has lived in the town of Dubrovnik her entire life. She was born in 1949. She passionately tells us the story of her childhood, which was peaceful and happy – despite the lack of everything children have access to nowadays. She loved her hometown Dubrovnik and loved the Catholic Holidays. In 1990 it was her own mother who warned her that a war was at hand. Soon afterwards, large groups of refugees came to Dubrovnik. The narrator went to Germany during the war, where she tried to convince German politicians and stakeholders to help and find a solution for the situation in former Yugoslavia and in Dubrovnik. But a lot of German people did not really understand her cry for help. Together with her children she came back and started organizing creative sewing and knitting workshops for refugee women.
